The Fundraising ballot for 2020 has now closed

Deckchair Cinema is available to hire for fundraising movie nights by Darwin-based, not-for-profit community organisations.

Fundraiser nights are held on a weekly basis throughout our season (mid-April to mid-November). Fundraiser movie nights are a great opportunity for organisations to raise much needed funds, raise awareness for your work and are also a great way for you to bring your members and other interested people in the community together for a fun night out. As our fundraising nights are so popular we operate a random ballot to allocate them. The ballot opens annually on 1 November, and closes on 31 January.

Some answers to common questions about the fundraisers at Deckchair:

• Fundraising organisations get to choose their film for their fundraiser night and we help you with suggestions

• Fundraising organisations are required to provide dinner food for sale on the night (we can provide a BBQ and/or a Bain Marie), this is a great opportunity to make extra income. You may approach a caterer to handle this part of the night for you.

• You cannot sell alcohol, soft drinks, popcorn, ice cream or pre-packaged food as Deckchair Cinema operates a licensed kiosk on the night. Instead you are welcome to offer home-made cakes along with your hot meals that you sell on the night

• Applicants are advised whether their applications are successful in early February
